Leopard and Layers

Even though it’s still considered fall, Toronto is officially freezing and has a thick layer of snow covering basically everything. This outfit was shot a few weeks ago (at 31 weeks pregnant), when the temperatures were a bit more mild and ideal for light layers, rather than down parkas.

I love this layered look as an easy office to holiday party transitional outfit. Adding this adorable oversized asymmetrical sweater (now on sale) over one of my favourite body-con dresses, helped dress down the leopard, making it more appropriate for the office. This chunky knit is the perfect for the chilly season ahead and can be easily paired with jeans, leggings and dressed it up.

With this growing giant bump, I kept the dress unzipped and folded one of the sleeves down, tucking it into my bra (hidden by the sweater) which allowed for the off-the-shoulder slouchy look to be achieved.

Knit Neutrals

Neutral KnitsFashion Magazine asked their style panel about their September resolution. Here is what I said.

This season, matching sweater sets (tops and bottoms) are going to be huge. That look is a lot for many people so  to tone down the trend look for some great knit separates that you’ll be able to pair together while shopping the new fall collections.

Winter Blues

I sometimes find winters in Canada really hard to get through. The short days, darkness, grey skies, salt stains, insane driving, and of course the cold, are just a few of the reasons why people struggle around this time of year. Mental health is so important to be discuss, and to know that you are never alone. There are so many Canadians who suffer from SAD (Seasonal affective disorder) which is a form of depression that occurs at a certain time of the year, usually in the winter.  Getting outside, doing things that make you happy, and even just wearing bright colours and bold prints can not only make you feel better, but also those around you. So wishing everyone a bright and wonderful last few days of January!
